The Party

(a responsive music installation)

What does a party look like through an introvert’s ears? There’s order to the disorder of social events: music is playing, people are interacting. But filter that through the overwhelming sensation of trying to navigate unnatural social norms, and the disorder begins to show.

The Party uses the distribution of people in the room to create drum beats in reaction to that information. For example, if more people are at the bar, the beat gets more tipsy, if there are more people on the dancefloor, it gets more groovy.

The result isn’t what you’d expect: the mixture of all of the people in multiple spaces creates a chaotic soundtrack.

History
